    • TRIVIA (3)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Piper: It's a map!
        Junko: This is confusing. They should have put a "You are here" on this thing.

      • Aerrow: (to himself while reaching for a crystal) Wait! Too easy... this has got to be a trick.
        Oracle: Quite true, Aerrow. Not all is what it seems.

      • Stork: I give you... the Storkmobile:
        Booby trap detectors, indestructible tires, roll bars, parachutes, anti-lock brakes, 52 independent external air bags... and an ejector seat.
        Junko: Um, why do you need an ejector seat?
        Stork: You always need an ejector seat.

    • NOTES (3)

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • The rolling boulder gag (which is commonly used) comes straight from the movie "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark."

      • The scene when the Oracle shows Aerrow the dark future ahead is similar to a scene in Lord of the Rings (where Galadriel the elf shows Frodo the sinister future for all hobbits if he should fail in his mission).

      • Tomb Raider
        The ancient city the Storm Hawks discover is similiar to the underground Incan civilzation where players explore as Lara Croft in the first Tomb Raider game.

      • Episode Title
        The title is an allusion to the Forbiden City in China where only the king, his servants, and his royal guard were allowed to live.
